Carson-2 months

Can't believe this little peanut is already 2 months old, which means I will be going back to work in just a few short days. I think that was the fastest maternity leave ever due to the majority of it being during the holidays.

Right Carson is sleeping 7-8 hours through the night. She goes to bed at 10:30 and sleeps till 6ish after she eats she typically goes back to sleep for another 3-4 hours. During the day she eats every 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Sometimes she will go 4 hours, but I wake her up if she tries to go this long.  She really doesn't eat much either. I typically nurse her for 12-15 minutes. At night before bed she takes a 4-5 ounce bottle, just so we can get her used to eating out of a bottle for daycare. It did take us about a week to get her to take the bottle, which we started at 5 weeks.

She is starting to get a little bit of a bald spot on the back of her head and her hair is starting to lighten up. She wearing 0-3 month and 3 month outfits, although she can still fit into newborn pants. We did move her up to size 1 diapers around 6 weeks mainly because we were out of newborn and I didn't want to buy diapers. We actually haven't had to buy diapers for Carson yet, because we had tons of newborn and size 1 diapers left over from Hendrix's baby shower. He was in size 2 by 8 weeks.

At her 2 month check up she was 9 1/2 weeks. She weighed 12lbs and 8 ounces (75th percentile) and was still 22inches long(22nd percentile). She was the same length as last time, but this is actually accurate. Her head was 38 1/4 cm which is the 45th percentile. I could tell her head had gotten bigger because her headbands have all started to fit a lot better.

Here are some pictures from this past month:

Ignore my crazy face, but this picture just cracks me up because she
is so into our bathroom lights.
